There are basically three sections of this book: youth / first love, nature, and wisdom. I have always turned to paper and pen when excited, in wonder, or distressed. I have found that writing down the obtrusive thoughts frees the mind.I have chosen poetry as the venue. Hopefully, you too can relate. I hope that you may glean some insight into yourself and find peace, joy, and some wisdom.I may add that some of the poetry is simple and obvious. Others need to be read more than once. As in a painting, the observer gets out of it what relates to her. So too in poetry. You may read a poem and feel something entirely different from why I wrote it. That is just fine. My purpose was personal. Your purpose could be that the poem stimulates a remembrance of a time in your life that can be relived. Enjoy.
